Where readers and authors come together. . . and depart friends.

“No event offers the intimate access to authors as the NBCC.”

Over the course of 13 years, some of the most famous and talented authors have been a part of what the NBCC calls “literary bliss”: Walter Mosley, Terry McMillan, Iyanla Vanzant, Susan L. Taylor, Pearl Cleage, Hill Harper, Dr. Cornel West, Tavis Smiley, Roland S. Martin, Terrie Williams, Tyrese Gibson, Zane, Eric Jerome Dickey, Kimberla Lawson Roby, Stephen L. Carter and Walter Dean Myers, among others, including the late E. Lynn Harris, Bebe Moore Campbell, Francis Ray and J. California Cooper.

Important to the NBCC, however, is to introduce new or lesser-known authors that have created stories that are entertaining, informative and important.
